What the future holds for independent ECPs

Advice on how the optical industry is changing


The future of the independent eye care professional lays in embracing what we have come to know as ‘digital’. Modern consumers now expect seamless in-practice experiences, knowledgeable members of staff, and bespoke service offerings. To meet these demands and to stave off the rising tide of high-street chains, independent practices can find the answer in modernising and optimising certain aspects of their business.

From lens personalisation to utilising the cloud, digital represents a complete solution. At Essilor, we want to help independent ECPs meet these evolving needs of the modern day consumer. As such, we’ve created a brand new informational hub designed to guide through this digital journey, and it all starts with the interactive infographic below. Download it to discover the content that builds upon these insights garnered from industry research.
